The humanities in architectural design: a contemporary and historical perspective

By Soumyen Bandyopadhyay, Jane Lomholt, Nicholas Temple and Renee Tobe


This edited book contains a series of selected papers presented at an international conference hosted by the University of Lincoln in November 2007. As described in the commentary of the text, the book offers “considerations of the impact which the humanities have had on the processes of architecture and design and subsequently defending their continual relevance….Written by leading academics in the fields of history, theory and philosophy of design, the essays draw profound meanings from cultural practices and beliefs (religious, mythic, poetic, political and philosophical). The traditional interrelationships between word and image, narrative and space have been altered by the growing dominance of digital media on design and the associated influences of globalization and mass consumption. The chapters here consider how the growing monopoly of technological development in our culture is shaping architectural discourse and how emerging technologies can usefully contribute to a deeper understanding of our design culture
